So I posted this question today to the TB'ers. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=231533 I had also sent Danan e-mail for any ideas on how to fix. What he wroote in his reply was this. "What model is it so I can send you a new volume pot". Short, sweet, and to the point. No messing around! Just gonna take care of the matter. Now that's great! Kudos to Dan Lakin!!!!!
